    I didn't go to the dentist for 10 years. But since I was about 16, I have been going at least once a year, twice if I can.

    That's mad. Didn't go for 10 years and my teeth are perfect. Getting xrays done on Tuesday to have a look at my wisdom teeth, and polish and clean because I love that.

    Apparently my previous dentist didn't get rid if of the decay when they filled my teeth so all of them need replacing or worse. On the plus side I had no clue I had two wisdoms come through without knowing it I suppose.
